Abstract The operation program of leisure welfare facilities for the elderly is attempting to develop programs related to health maintenance and informatization education that suit the characteristics of the area where a facility and operating entity are located and that address the leisure needs of the elderly. However, the current programs being operated and developed are centered on suppliers rather than on the current status of a facility and its users. Therefore, it is necessary to review in terms of facility status and selection of users in the operation of a dementia prevention program at existing senior citizen centers planned for the 2020 Ministry of Health and Welfare project for the elderly. This study calculated the area required to operate a program concerning the scope of elderly physical activity and the size of existing facilities in senior citizen centers. The purpose is to identify the types of dementia prevention programs for the elderly and to review whether the planned program can be operated
